Generator Remote Manual Stop Station

I'm looking for an interpretation of what is intended for a "remote manual stop station" in accordance with NFPA110-2010 5.6.5.6?  "All installations shall have a remote manual stop station of a type to prevent inadvertent or unintentional operation located outside the room housing the prime mover, where so installed, or elsewhere on the premises where the prime mover is located outside the building."

Is this intended to be a big, red emergency stop button?  Or is a switch located in our generator control room that can be positioned to prevent the generator to start (i.e. locked out) sufficient?
